Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that's needed to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by plenty of corporations which develop paid script apps, so when you buy such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to shield your code and ensure that your website visitors or clients will be unable to change it in whatever way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer usually perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you select, you will be able to use the software instrument so that any script app which requires it will operate flawlessly in your account. Using a handy tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do that each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
